2018 Ridin’ High at the Ranch Race Report by Jake Mikesell

June 06th, 2018

This weekend I raced in Susanville Ca at “Ridin High at the Ranch” Mountain Bike Race. At the start it looked like there were many people in my category which fueled me to push even harder. It seemed like I kept climbing up and up and up some more for the first 15 miles. The climbs were wet and muddy which really was taxing on the muscles. But as soon as I hit the downhill I was gone. All I could hear was Jed Pope yelling at me to put my dropper down and pedal! After passing many people on the downhill, I came screaming across the finish line beat to the core. The race officials started calling out the winners of each class and they called my name for first place in the Cat 2 Men’s 19-29. I was thrilled and marched my tired body to the top of the podium showing off OUR colors. Only one other person actually finished the race but a win is a win. I would like to thank John and Owens Healthcare for the extensive support and the rest of the Owens team for always believing in me and pushing me to my full potential. I would not be the cyclist I am today if it was not for you guys! I am looking forward to many more upcoming races and especially the Lost and Found next weekend.
